TAsC rally on Duderstadt's
sI bfF flc 4 uy ? t4f4lawn, demand pay hike

by Stefanie Vines
Daily Faculty Reporter
Members of the Graduate
Employees Organization (GEO)
gave President James Duderstadt a
special April Fools' Day gift yes-
terday.
GEO members wrote chalk mes-
sages on Duderstadt's driveway in
support of a proposed strike or
"work inconvenience."
Members of the TA union also
chanted "no more this or that, can't
you hear us Duderstadt," to the
rhythm of April Fools' Day noise
blowers while picketing in front
of Duderstadt's house.
The picket came in response to
the stalled contract negotiations
between the University and GEO.
"There are some serious matters
of principle involved here," said

GEO spokesperson Alan Zundel,
who was wearing an April Fools'
hat.
Zundel explained GEO's pro-
posed strike Thursday.
"What is vital is that people in
the United States have the right to
organize and bargain collectively.
We can withhold labor to have our
rights taken seriously," he said.
Howard Stewart, member of
the United Auto Workers and a
GEO organizer, agreed with
Zundel.
"I have seen how the University
treats its workers. It is an atrocity
that they behave in this racist, anti-
worker way," he said.
Stewart added that GEO should
extend its message to other labor
organizations.
"You're not going to get sup-

port unless you ask for it. We
should mobilize with the labor
community against the jerks who
are messing you around."
Many undergraduates agreed
with Stewart.
"I wouldn't put it past the
University to treat them unfairly.
The University is acting inappro-
priately," LSA senior Amy Herrup
said.
"Considering how committed
Duderstadt is to undergraduate ed-
ucation it really surprises me he
isn't more interested in talking
with the TAs," RC sophomore
Kevin Stein said.
Negotiations continue Wed-
nesday afternoon in Detroit as
University and GEO bargainers
meet with a state mediator to try
and resolve the new contract.

law increase goes into effect

ASSUGWiatU rress
The federal minimum wage
rose to $4.25 an hour yesterday, a
45-cent-an-hour increase that will
bolster the paychecks of at least 3
million Americans.
Yesterday's increase in the
minimum wage from $3.80 an hour

is the second step of a two-part in-
crease Congress enacted in 1989
after a long and fierce battle with
the Bush administration.
The first step took effect a year
ago, when the minimum wage
went from $3.35 an hour to $3.80. It
was the first increase in nearly a
decade.

Some low-wage workers say it
still is not enough to live on.
"Does it help me? - no. I've0
got another kid coming and it's not
going to help me," cashier Cam
Thompson said Monday from be- r
hind the counter of a Taco Bell in
Jefferson City, Mo.

Detroit with a state mediator to
continue negotiations. An April 15
meeting has also been planned if no
agreement is reached Wednesday.
The mediator is a representative of
the Michigan Employment Rel-
ations Commission.
In 1987, GEO and the University
reached a settlement after one round
of negotiations with a state media-
tor. The last official strike occurred
in 1975 when GEO held a work
stoppage for the entire month of
February until agreement was fi-
nally reached with the University.
State Mediator Charles
Jamerson said his biggest goal is to
resolve the issues.
"I have scheduled a meeting to
assist them to help them get an

agreement. Bargaining is now under
my assistance. Hopefully we can
bring a conclusion to the whole sit-r
uation," he said.
Dolan-Greene said Jamerson will
spend time going between the two
teams. If an agreement cannot be
reached then Jamerson or one of the
teams can request a fact-finder to
investigate the issues.
"The fact-finder makes a deter-
mination on what is the best posi-
tion. He or she would not have to
agree with either team's position,"
she said.
But Jamerson said a fact-finder
would be the last step in the bar-
gaining process.
"I wouldn't want to speculate
on what could happen. We are con-
cerning ourselves with the media-
tion process, not fact finding," he
said.4

COUNCIL
Continued from page 1
"When you reach my stage in life,
there are always trade-offs - if you
get elected, you can't do something
else. I feel I would've been a winner
either way."
Meade compared yesterday's
Democratic landslide with the city
election in 1969.
"When I was a precinct captain
22 years ago, we had an election like

this, and I didn't think I'd ever see
that day again," Meade said.
Incumbent Ann Marie Coleman
(D-First Ward), running unopposed,
won with 1,499 votes.
Coleman, who ran unopposed in
the strongly democratic First Ward,
was in a minor car accident
yesterday, Brater said.
City council elections are held
every April. Two councilmembers
represent each of the five wards,
with one running for election each
year.
